Exercising Options

I am still getting nowhere near enough hours with my present job. In fact, I have now been waiting seven days for some information to complete a project.  I have sent emails (as this is currently my only way to reach my employer) and have been told that the request will be attended to and then... it is not.

I can't wait around hoping that things will change.  I'm not going to let someone tell me that I am the problem because I've been very communicative and available and it's done not one bit of good.

I think the issue is that bosslady wanted an assistant and bossdude did not feel it necessary, but hired someone to make bosslady happy.  Bossdude has been consistently rude and dismissive.  Also, if they wanted someone to perform manual/physical labour, they should have specified that in their advert, which they did not.  I don't do heavy lifting, I never said that I would and have no intention of doing so... and if that is what costs me my job, so be it... at least I won't have a herniated disc in my back.

Also, there were several tasks at the S office that needed to be done.  I spent a couple of hours on a Saturday taking pages of notes of instructions.  Part of it involved going back to the S office to pack things up, etc. Well... I found out that Dragon Lady Office Manager was told to do all of the tasks I had been instructed to do.  I offered to share the bosslady's explicit instructions with Dragon Lady and she was totally uninterested.  So, yeah...  I think it's time to admit to myself that this really isn't working and do what I need to do.

It's really too bad, too. This really had a lot of potential.  I'm not quitting, I am just going to look for another job and if this one comes up with some hours, great... if not, I won't be looking to sell my kidney on the black market to pay the bills.
